Now that summer is here, I've made my usual promise to myself to read more... for pleasure that is!!  Everything in the summer should be for pleasure, don't you think?  I first heard of this book while listening to the Dinner Party Download on NPR and I was immediately intrigued after listening to Ms. Straub read from her book.  The dreamy book cover would have been enough for me but when I learned the story takes place in Mallorca, Spain, I had to grab a copy.  If you rather lay by the pool and listen to the story, you are in luck because it is also available on audio.  I went back and forth on that option because as much as I would like to curl up with a book, I also love listening to a good story while I relax at night and when the sun is too bright to read by the pool.

What will you be reading this weekend?
